WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
Koole sometimes grants third parties access to personal data when it deems it necessary. These concern partners and business contacts (such as IT suppliers and marketing agencies) whom we have commissioned to perform services involving the processing of personal data. These third parties, as well as employees of Koole, are granted access to personal data only to the extent that Koole deems necessary. We may also share personal data within our group companies. In the event that personal data are shared, we will, where legally required or otherwise deemed necessary, enter into (processor) agreements to safeguard your rights. Employees of Koole are bound by a written agreement of confidentiality.
In principle, your data will not be shared with parties outside the European Economic Area (EEA). If this does happen, we will ensure a proper level of protection for your personal data. We do this, for example, by entering into the standard European Commission contracts made available for this purpose. In addition, we apply technical and organisational measures to ensure that your personal data is processed under the safeguards required by the AVG.
Koole reserves the right to provide personal data to third parties if required to do so by law or if Koole considers this to be justified in order to comply with a legal request/process or to protect the rights, property or safety of Koole or its employees. In this respect we will always endeavour to respect your right to privacy as much as possible.
YOUR RIGHTS; VIEWING, AMENDING OR DELETING INFORMATION
Within the context of the processing of your personal data, you have various rights. These rights are listed below, after which it is explained how you can exercise these rights.
- Right to information and inspection: you have the right to request an overview of the data we process about you.
- Right to amendment or restriction: if your data has changed or is otherwise incorrect, you have the right to have your data rectified by us. You can also request us to restrict the processing of your personal data.
- Right to transfer: you have the right to request Koole to transfer the data we process from you to another party.
- Right to erasure of data: you have the right to request deletion of your data.
- Right to object: you can object to the use of your personal data, for example if you believe that the use of your personal data is not necessary for the performance of our activities or to comply with a legal obligation.
- Right to withdraw consent: if Koole processes your data on the basis of consent given by you, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time. Please note that you do not thereby withdraw your consent for personal data previously processed on the basis of your consent.
- Right to lodge a complaint: if you have any complaints about the processing of your personal data by Koole, you may make them known to us. In the unlikely event that you are not satisfied with the settlement of the complaint or otherwise with the handling of your personal data by Koole, you can also submit a complaint to the Dutch Data Protection Authority (AP) (via https://autoriteitpersoonsgegevens.nl/nl/contact-met-de-autoriteit-persoonsgegevens/tip-on).
We will comply with your request, unless we have a compelling legitimate interest in not complying with your request that outweighs your (privacy) interest. If we have deleted the data, for technical reasons we may not be able to immediately remove all copies of the data from our systems and back-up systems. We may also refuse to comply with the above requests if they are made unreasonably frequently, require unreasonable technical effort, or have unreasonable technical consequences for our systems or jeopardise the privacy of others.
How do I exercise my rights?
If you wish to exercise (one of) the above rights, you can contact Koole for this purpose via the contact details given below in this privacy statement.
In order to ensure that the request is really made by you as the data subject, we ask you to enclose a copy of your proof of identity with the request. We ask you to black out the passport photo, MRZ (machine readable zone: the strip with numbers at the bottom of the passport), passport number and BSN. This can be done, for example, with the government’s mobile application KopieID.
Once we have received your request, we will respond to it as quickly as possible, but in any event within four weeks. If we comply with your request, we will of course also inform other parties involved in the processing (if applicable).
